Dozens of pattern shapes are arranged on leather hides like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Repeating panels are die-cut with a weighted press. Embossed panels and delicate shapes are individually cut by hand.
Shaping an OM bag begins with the intricate leather lining. The interior and exterior spaces are built out separately, then joined together. Curved edges and straight lines must meet with great finesse.
The fundamental top-stitch is worked on machine and by hand. As design elements, stitched out Os and Ms hide in plain sight. The effect is a harmonious and humble brand signature.
The mark of exceptional leather craftsmanship, edge painting is a time-intensive and unforgiving final step. By a steady hand, several coats of paint seal the bag's raw seams. Once dry, the work is complete.
